  1. Today when we start playing something... the items goes automatically to "Resume" list, if we don't end watching it. It happens that sometimes we really don't want end watching the item. And there's no way of removing it, so it bloats that list, until you watch it... or start meddling with the "Watched" button. I ask devs that, for items in "Resume" list, another icon pops up when hovering the item. That icon could be just a "X" allowig us to remove it, without changing the watched status, whatever it is.

    Runtime missing (possibly) on all files?

    I've noticed that resume points are not working when using kodi+emby. Instead a movie is instantly set to "watched" after i started it. I've searched a little bit and one possible explanation is a missing runtime - but I'm not 100% sure if that is the case (there are some other clues pointing to that: e.g sorting by runtime in emby does not work either), because I could not find a single place where emby displays the runtime. So my first question before investigating further is: Where is the runtime displayed in emby? How can I confirm that the runtime is missing (or not)?
  3. Hello, I can not seek/resume videos which require remuxing on my NVIDIA Shield using the Emby for Android TV's internal Player (exoplayer?). Whenever I try to resume, rewind or fast forward a video that is being remuxed, the video skips to the correct frame it is supposed to continue from but then stays there. According to ffmpeg logs and watching the size of the created tmp directory file transcoding works fine. If I play the video from beginning to end it works just fine. Also videos that are "direct play" or transcoded work fine including seek and resume - only "direct stream" is a problem. Workarounds are switching to use external player (vlc) or setting max bitrate low to force transcoding. What I have tried: - switching audio to "direct" and "downmix to stereo" - accessing emby server directly (8920 and 8096) - accessing emby server via nginx reverse proxy (ssl and unencrypted) - nginx: with and without http2 enabled - access emby server by hostname or ip - switching ffmpeg versions (3.1.4, 3.1.5, ffmpeg-git-20160215-64bit-static) - move transcoding temp folder to local or nfs storage This has been happening across several emby-server and emby for android tv versions. Possibly related: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43008-on-remux-android-tv-times-out-too-many-errors/ though I do not receive any errors on the client. Interestingly enough while trying various settings/configurations fast forwarding worked on one occasion yesterday though not repeatable. There is nothing in the server or ffmpeg logs which is different from attempts where it fails. I attached the logs of the attempt where the first fast forward worked (ffmpeg -ss 00:05:26.589 ...) while the second attempt on the same video with the same settings about 30 seconds later failed (ffmpeg -ss 00:11:21.392 ...). ffmpeg1.txt ffmpeg2_fast_forward_success.txt ffmpeg3_fast_forward_fail.txt server.txt
  4. This post (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/35769-resume-is-not-working-with-mpc-hc-in-mbt/) got me thinking about VLC (my preferred player). I've already posted a Feature Request for a manual entry option (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43209-fr-option-for-external-players-to-prompt-for-stop-time/), which the good Emby folks hope to add in the future. But I have an idea for how we could partially automate this via a plugin, for users using VLC in particular. VLC has a HTTP Interface which can enable us to find out Duration (ie, total time of the currently playing item) and Elapsed time (ie, how much has been already played). I will paste an example of the XML output at the bottom of this post. We should be able to easily parse the <time> node to get the Elapsed time, and the <length> node to get the duration (both appear to be in Seconds). And then if that data has been stored in Emby for a given item, we can use the VLC Command Line --start-time=seconds to launch VLC, telling VLC to go to that point in the video. A significant caveat though is that if the user is using VLC to play a full DVD rip VIDEO_TS folder (which I am a big fan of, for the DVD menu support), then --start-time is likely to not produce the desired results (because DVD's vary in how they're authored, and so the time won't get applied to correct portion of the DVD. I think that in most cases it won't actually hurt anything, and perhaps in some cases the desired result will be achieved. But my thinking is that when clicking Play, ET can display some sort of message along the lines of "You stopped your video at ~34 minutes (out of 1 hour and 55 minutes total run time). Emby will attempt to resume at your stopping point, but you may have to manually go to the 34 minute mark (depending on the media format)." And then the user would click "Proceed" and VLC would launch. This way, they know where to fast forward (or jump ahead via chapters) if they're using a format (eg, VIDEO_TS folder rips) that doesn't lend itself to easy resuming. I am also exploring if there is any way to get the DVD "title" currently being played (note, this is not the movie title, but "title" as referring to the section within the DVD structure), but I'm not optimistic about being able to access that. If that is accessible, however, then it would actually be possible to construct a command line to resume the ripped DVD at the correct position, which would be rather nifty. I am a alright programmer (I work mostly with HTML, JavaScript, PHP, CSS/SCSS, and a little VBA and other assorted Windows-centric languages), but am brand new to Emby. If the above proposed plugin interests folks, is anyone interested in collaborating on bringing this about? I could likely handle any JavaScript-related elements of pulling the data from VLC (via the VLC HTTP Interface) and parsing the XML data, but I don't know anything (yet) about how to get that into the appropriate places within Emby so that Emby is storing the data. As a side note, I figure we'll poll the XML page periodically (eg, every 60 seconds, perhaps?), and I have some additional thoughts on underlying logic for how to do things (eg, we'll want to handle the fact that a VIDEO_TS DVD folder can have multiple "titles"/videos and so be careful we don't overwrite our Elapsed Time when the user is just in the DVD menu or something -- perhaps we'd prompt the user after they exit VLC as to whether they want to update their Resume Position with the new data or keep the old data [which we could display for comparison]?).

  5. Hello, I hope it this is the right place to put this because my problem is about to the legacy version of Emby Theater. I want to use MPC-HC as an external player out of MBT but the file always starts from the beginning. At the dashboard it shows me which file is playing (until I close the player) but not the position of the play progress. As I understood, I have to activate the web interface by using the "listen to port" checkmark in MPC-HC. My command line arguments in the external player settings in MBT are: {PATH} /start {ms} /fullscreen /play /close any help would be greatly appreciated

    TV Series Shortcut

    Is there a way to have the main menu screen for TV show suggest the next episode of a series your in the middle of, or make a shortcut to the season your on right from the menu? I find it kind of tedious to have to dig though all of the TV content to find the next episode to watch. It would be really cool to just have Emby remember what episode was watched last suggest the next episode, or provide a quick link of the season of the series. Just to be clear this isn't when I am "binge" watching a TV series obviously I can just click the next arrow to go to the next episode. This is when I stop watching tv for the night and I want to continue where I left off the next night. Also since I am going to topic of menu, is there a way to make a time limit on how long shows appear in the continue watch or Resume category? I am all for this category when I gotten interrupted during a show or just want to switch from upstairs TV to downstairs TV, but if I haven't continued watching the show within a week or two I am probably not going to watch it or need to start from the beginning anyways because I don't remember what is going on. As far as I can tell there is no way of removing the show from the list unless skip to the end. Many shows end up this way when I want to find a specific part of a show, and I end up searching through a few episodes.
  7. I am currently using the Podcast Plugin (LOVE IT @ebr) to watch all of the video podcasts that I subscribe too. There are a number of the podcasts that I listen to that are over an hour and a half long. Sadly, I often don't have time to watch the entire episode in one sitting. When I stop watching the podcast, the plugin simply marks the podcast as watched and moves on to the next episode. However, as I was not finished watching the last podcast, I would like for the plugin to support resume playback functionality in the same way that the server supports it for movies or TV shows. First, is this possible to have implemented, and second, if it is possible, will it be implemented?
  8. I had an issue and needed to rebuild the PC with Emby on it however I'm having one issue now. When playing any media that is on the PC with Emby installed I can FF/Resume the media, but the media on the other PC will play just fine but I can't FF/RW/Resume. I have full control of the share on the other PC, I can delete files and so on. I have clearly missed a step when rebuilding but I can't for the life of me figure out what I have missed. I have spent hours trying to figure this out and I'm hoping someone might know what I'm doing wrong here. This is happening in Chrome and ET.

    Resume issue since 3.0.5882.0

    Since version 3.0.5882.0 (Standard version) the Resume function does not seem to work correctly - Press stop button and Emby forgets where the movie is up to and you have to start the movie from the beginning again (no resume option available). NB: Emby for WMC front end. Server installed on Qnap TS-870 Pro. Versions I have found this issue with are: Emby_3.0.5910.0_x86 Emby_3.0.5911.0_x86 As soon as I roll back to Emby_3.0.5882.0_x86.qpkg this problem ceases to exist and the Resume function works as normal.

    Resume Not Working

    Hello all. I am having an issue resuming playback (of movies specifically). If I start playing a movie in Kodi and stop at say the 20 minute mark, I can see the partially watched icon in Kodi (as expected). If I go to the Emby web app, I can see that movie in the resume section and can resume playback from the web app at the 20 minute mark. If I try to resume playback in Kodi, however, it always starts from the beginning. I have attached the pertinent portion of my kodi log for reference (hopefully, I did not omit any important info). Any help is appreciated. kodi-log-resume-issue.txt
  11. If I'm watching a video and pause it for more than a minute, when I try to resume it the audio restarts but the video never resumes. The only way I can get video working again is to stop the video and fast forward to the point where I paused it. The server is a dual proc Xeon X5660 @ 2.80GHz with 96GB RAM on a RAID 6 array, so I don't think it's a resource issue. The client is an Nvidia Shield. My only guess is that there is something going on with trans-coding on the server end. From what I can tell unfortunately everything is being transcoded on the server end despite the fact that the shield can handle it. How can I troubleshoot this issue or what info can I provide to obtain assistance?

    Web client not saving resume points

    Is the web client (Chrome browser) supposed to save resume points when I stop watching a movie or TV show, say at the half-way point? For me, it doesn't seem to save stopping/resume points when I use the player via Chrome browser (regardless of machine - I've tried it from several different machines with no luck - I have not tested other browsers). Note that the web client does seem to allow resuming from resume points that were already set via other clients (for example, via Android phone or Kodi using Emby plug-in). Should this work, or am I expecting too much from the web client?
  13. Hi all, I'm using: Emby Server Version 3.0.5785.0 MB Theatre 3.0.5848.25554 I use TMT6 as an external player for BD and DVD playback. I use MPC-HC as an external player for all other media content. The "Continue watching" (resume) feature works fine for any content played back using MPC-HC but not for content played back via TMT6. My 'Resume' settings in Emby Server are as follows: Min resume %: 5 Max resume %: 95 Min resume duration: 300 I think these are the default settings. I've had this problems since I first installed MB (as was) and MBT a couple of years back. How can I troubleshoot this further? Let me know if you need me to upload logs. Many thanks

    DLNA and XBOX One Resume

    Hi There, Does anyone else have a problem when using play-to with Xbone one that it cannot resume when playback has already started. Using the Windows 8.1/10 app, it just crashes out when I select resume on playback. TIA, Jason

    Group users for multi sync

    Hi there, I think this may be useful for families and the like. My housemate and I watch series together but sometimes she is away or busy, so I carry on without her, and vice versa. It would be really useful if we could create a group profile, called "house" for instance. This would then be linked to our individual profiles, so when we watched together as this "user" both our individual account's play states would be updated. If I then wanted to continue alone I would use my personal profile which would not update hers or "house". So this would be a one way sync from house to each user on said group. Even better would be a two way sync but with a "resume from user_x or user_y" option. I doubt this is a hugely necessary feature but it would be nice.
  16. FR 1: Would be nice to have a list of resumable items in Kodi ?? I believe all Emby clients have this option, but I can't find any way of viewing just resumable items in Kodi. FR 2: Will chapter support be coming to the addon soon ?? This will enable starting items from a particular point, as most Emby clients do. Perhaps these are both skin related options, but I'm not sure if they are already available in Kodi or not. Perhaps something that should be included in an Emby Skin for Kodi. Thanks.
  17. I've been trying to get this to work now for a few weeks. Hate to compare to the "other" media server out there, Plex, but this resume function kinda has me scratching my head. It seems to me the way it should work, as it does on the other tool, is when say a video, be it TV, Movie, whatever, is started on the Android App or in a browser, the server should remember the spot where the video was stopped, then no matter how long it is later, I should be able to pick up right back at that same spot, aka, Resume, correct? In Emby, I start a video playing on Android, then it does indeed show up in the Resume category in the browser with the green bar indicating how much is left to view, I select Resume for playback, and without fail it goes back to the beginning of the video. I hate to sound like I'm complaining, because I truly find the convenience of either of these media server tools to be mind blowing, and Emby has some great stuff going for it over Plex, except this one thing has been bugging me, and as a supporting member of the community/tool, I'd really like to have this aspect functioning. I've attached an image of my Playback/Resume settings. Maybe I'm missing something completely obvious. If so, any thoughts? Thanks! Brandon
  18. Hi, first off extremely nice work. I have not found any really serious issues. Overview: In short, I cannot correctly; play a video, stop/resume and then stop/resume again. Detail: - Play Vid with transcoding (works perfectly) - Stop Playback after $X Minutes and then hit resume (resumes from correct position, but the time counter starts at zero again) - watch $Y more Minutes then stop playback again - now i only get the option to resume from $Y minutes, not ($X + $Y) as would be expected. Please let me know if I can provide any further info, and thanks in advance for any insights.
  19. Some files, mostly downloaded anime, can't be resumed from the Android TV app on the Nexus Player. Here's a video demonstrating it. At the end the app stopped responding and the black screen turns gray, It's not showing in the video because android itself seems to hang (I'm using adb screengrab). Pressing the home button will return me home after 5-10 seconds. Most times I have to force stop/clear data to get back into the emby app. If you want to match the time of the logs with the video, the video starts at 0:12:14 server time. Extra possibly useful info: The app was started right after I cleared all data on it. This was done on a fresh install of the server. The same behavior happens on the dev version of the server. Some files resume normally, but all anime I tried doesn't resume properly (only tried 2 animes tho). Sometimes it starts playing if I try to forward playback. The files play fine if I play from the beginning. If I don't press anything the black screen stays there "forever", the app doesn't crash and the server logs just show calls to /mediabrowser/Sessions/Playing/Progress every couple seconds Another problem with these files is that if you forward playback too fast (I do this to skip anime intros) the same behavior starts to happen. It seems to be happening if the time I skip to is not yet transcoded. Might be the same issue or it might be another one. Let me know if you need a video/logs of this. I didn't find any logs in /data/data/tv.emby.embyatv or in /sdcard so I'm assuming the Android TV app doesn't have logs yet. Attached server logs and an ffprobe of the test file I used. - Nodja 20150411 logs nexus player resume broken.zip 20150411 ffprobe resume broken file.txt

    Resume inoperative

    I'm using WMC with MPC-HC as an external player. All my media is MKV rips (not ISO). It seems that "most" of my movies don't have the resume option after I press "stop" and the movie backs out to the mediabrowser screen. Basically if I press "stop" then I have to start the movie all over again. I'm not sure if this is related (I have to do more troubleshooting) but last night I was watching a movie and I pressed stop... came back about 10 minutes later and noticed that there was no resume and that the movie had a red check mark on it (showing that it was completed?) but I had only watched about 1/4 of the movie. I went into the settings for MBC and unchecked all the boxes under "indicators". This did not get rid of the red check mark. How do I get rid of the red check mark (thinking that it will allow resume once I do).
  21. I access MB Server 3 via my Panasonic Viera TC-P50UT50 via DLNA. No problem accessing folders or viewing movies. The issue is when I try to use the playback controls via the TV's remote control. For example, when I pause and then hit play again, the movie starts from the beginning. Funny thing is, the counter continues where the movie left off, even thugh the movie starts over. Same thing with forward, reverse, etc. Anybody else run into this and resolved?
  22. I am a little unclear on this so seeking some clarification regarding the new view in MBC. Should we always see the favourites and resume items in the view even if there are no items in them? In my case I have no favourites or resume items but I see them. If I go into them it says there are no items. Would be better not be be there until something is in them. One final question is backdrops. Is there any way to enable backdrops for each of these items using the IBN or indeed would it not be better to display random backdrops of the content of each folder? Currently the black screen is rather unimpressive. Edit: Just read the hide empty folders topic. I thought I had this checked but cannot confirm. Either way I am now using .254 so it is gone.
  23. v.523 (I think, downloaded yesterday) The Samsung client is marking partially watched tv content as watched. All the other clients do not seem to set the watched flag until the content is fully watched. Consequently, partially watched tv content on Samsung, does not show on tv next up (on any other clients).

    Movie won't play from beginning

    I sometimes have problems with movies if there is an indication that they have partially been watched. If I open a movie in the Roku channel and get the option of Resume/Play from Beginning sometimes the movie files will not open if I choose Play from Beginning instead of Resume--the loading file screen comes up but it doesn't completely load and Media Browser goes back to the beginning Play Screen. This seems to be more of a problem with larger sized video files. I was wondering if there is a way to clear the partially played memory for a movie so Media Browser will only offer the option of playing rather than Play or Resume.
  25. When I play a video from the start the subtitle is showing perfect but at resume no subtitle is showing. Even switching between subtitle doesn't help. I experienced this behavior with several versions of the server and webclients. With kind regards, Rienk Kuipers The Netherlands.
